Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

The Opinuary Column



i was looking for a hero in the GOP
one who stood for you and me
someone to celebrate in story and song
still waiting for that someone to come along

the children shuddered and cried in fear
who will save the day, who can we cheer
who is the one to face the foe
stare down the devil, let the river flow

they sold their souls to the two percent
they sold the family for a couple months rent
they sold the future and burned the past
for a few dollars more they will kiss your ass

gather around in the darkest night
we tell tall tales by the fire bright
watch for the devil who was heaven sent
they'll sell their souls to the two percent

they put on suits and painted their skin
they hurt their moms when they were born again
they made their way to capitol hill
the two percent gave them such a thrill

they sold their souls to the two percent
they sold the family for a couple months rent
they sold the future and burned the past
for a few dollars more they will kiss your ass

damn the country, damn the earth
by gum damn it for all its worth
share the love until its spent
ain't nothing like the love of the two percent
